You can register as a charitable trust but you would still need to apply for charitable status under New Zealand law. The charitable status is not transferred because it may be charitable overseas but that doesn’t apply in New Zealand
Customer
The charitable Trust is already registered in NZ as a charitable Trust if you search number we provided you will find it is Methodist Trust Board of Samoa where Church is located a d I believe they already own properties in NZ
We are happy to pay for advice and best to contact us on office email***@******.***
